Randall Eyeing Premiership Matches

Randall Eyeing Premiership Matches

Promising Arsenal midfielder Mark Randall is hoping to be given a chance to shine in The Premiership this season after impressing in the academy and reserves last season.

He joined Arsenal less than a year ago as a schoolboy, and it took Arsene Wenger all of 6 months to decide he was worthy of a professional contract.

His favoured posistion is central midfield, but if he is to play in the Premiership next season, it's more likely to be on one of the flanks.

He made 17 apperances in all last season. Ten for the Under-18's and seven for the reserves, scoring two goals.

The youngster told Arsenal.com: 'Hopefully I will get a run-out in the Premier League this season but maybe I will go out on loan. I don't know yet.

He puts those who rant and rave about Arsene Wenger having an agenda with English youngsters to shame, confirming that if you are good enough, you play.

'But as a youngster I feel if you are good enough then you will get your chance here. The boss has shown that in the past.'

He then went on to speak abou the benefits of joining the first team on their tour of Austria: 'The first team come to Austria every season and a lot of young players want to be part of the tour.

'Training with them is a lot sharper. Having such good players around you all the time makes it a lot easier both for yourself and your team-mates.

'There is also a great spirit around the squad at the moment and it was great to be part of that.'

Mark keeps nagging me for a game on Football Manager 07, but I've asked him to be patient.

It will be nice to see someone from the reserve team make it to the 1st team. I was impressed with Randall in the Barnet game, though he didnt look that good against Salzburg. Lets hope he gets a good run in the CC.

well, can anyone tell me which wing Randall has been deployed on during pre-season? And I hear that Kieron Gibbs ahd a good game yesterday in the 2-1 win over Inter? Nice to see a few of the reserves being given a chance to show what they can do and stake a claim for a place in the side. »»Arsene Knows««

Both Randall and Gibbs were played at left wing during pre-season. We seem to have fewer options there without Rosicky. Gibbs did have a good game, he didnt look out of place, put in a few good tackles and set up Flamini nicely for his shot on goal.
